CLEVELAND — A win is a win. At the end of the day, that's all that matters.
At least, that's the mantra of most Browns fans following Sunday's less-than-spectacular win over the 0-8-1 Detroit Lions. Most of Cleveland's players had rough days (besides Nick Chubb), but the team is still 6-5 and in the hunt for the playoffs.
What should've been an easy victory became a nail biter late, thanks to some defensive lapses and an offense that couldn't find its groove all afternoon. Baker Mayfield had one of his worst games of the year, leaving some to question why he was even out there when he was obviously playing hurt.
So while it beats the alternative, fans aren't exactly in a cheerful mood, especially with a brutal schedule coming up over the final six games. While some are just breathing a sigh of relief, others were quick to point out some of the more glaring issues.
Here are some of the top reactions we found from spectators and analysts alike:
